(MileSplit caught up with Kaylyn following her successful season debut at Tiffin University)
Kaylyn Heath has her sprint game rolling in the early stages of the indoor season. The senior from Lakota East has lined-up at a pair of meets, the Tiffin University opener and the Ted Haydon Classic, and she's come away with 60m victories on both occasions. She went 7.75 and 7.62 during her appearances in the finals and in the lead-up, she also crossed the line first in her preliminary contests; 7.93 at Tiffin and 7.79 at Ted Haydon. Heath will carry an unblemished record and a series of big goals with her into 2019.
MileSplit tracked down Kaylyn to discuss her season to date and to learn about her upcoming goals.
What do think has led to all of your early season success?
I attribute my accomplishments to the great training plans that my coaches have provided me and to the grace of God for allowing me to be healthy once again after dealing with injuries for a long time.
What are your overall goals for the 2019 indoor season?
My goals for the season are to continue to be healthy and to perform to the best of my ability.
What will your training need to look like in order to achieve those goals?
The times will come - I just need to remain patient. I plan to return strong in 2019 and make a big impact. In order to reach my full potential, I'll have to do everything that my coaches ask of me, no matter how hard those workouts might be. I believe in the quote, "the hottest fire makes the hardest steel." Positivity is the key!
